Celeste Sells Half a Million Copies in 2018

Indie games can often struggle when pit against all those big budget releases but there has been one title in particular this year to come out on top! Celeste, by Matt Makes Games, is absolutely perfect by our standards. So, it’s no wonder Celeste has hit a huge milestone!

Much like Madeline platforming her way up the mountain through treacherous environments, Celeste climbed past other popular releases to find its place at the top. Celeste released in January 2018 and in less than a year, it has sold 500,000 copies! This is according to a Tweet Matt himself posted to thank all who contributed to its success. In addition to that, he states new levels are in the works and to stay tuned in 2019 to hear more about them.

It is so great to hear how well Celeste has been doing and we look forward to new content soon. Xbox One owners who haven’t played yet can get it during Games with Gold starting January 1. Check out the big news below and don’t forget to read our review!
